Tutorial: How To Do a Faux Bob




Check out this new tutorial on How To Do a Faux Bob, the latest in my partnership with Storyboard Wedding.

You’ve got gorgeous long lush hair but wearing it all down isn’t in the cards.  Whipping it up into a full on updo isn’t really your thing either, so where do you go from there?  A haircut is out of the question as you’re not looking for that kind of permanent decision–so now what?  Ladies I present to you one of my ultimate favorite answers to the age old question, what do I do with my hair…the Faux Bob!

The Best Cruelty Free Drugstore Eyeliner




Good cruelty free drugstore makeup can be a pretty steep demand, but my recent happy find turned out to be the best cruelty free drugstore eyeliner: Milani Eye Tech Perfection Liquid eyeliner. This eyeliner’s ergonomic grip design that has been sported by several other brands including Sephora is no coincidence; this packaging design comes from one German company that makes a great deal of the same eye and lip products you already use or recognize easily by a wide variety of brands from NYX to MAC.

Retails: $8, self purchased at CVS

MilaniEYE TECH Perfection-Liner-Black

Still you pick up an item at the drugstore and you think “Hmmmmm this is only $8…is it worth it to try or is it going to be a waste?” Well, I feel bold when I have a $5 Beauty Rewards coupon from CVS and the product in question is only $8 retail to begin with. At that point, if I hate the thing I can use it to cover nicks on a black shoe in a pinch, who cares?

What is this product’s claim to fame? “Smooth sailing all the way…”

I bought it, used it, LOVED it. From Milani’s website:

The technical term for the unusual shape of this liner is “ergonomic.” But we have other ways of describing it. (”Feels great.” “Fits like a glove.” “Changes your life.”) If you’ve ever struggled with liquid before – ever had it skip or smear – you’ll be amazed at how much more control you have in this super smartly designed felt-tip tool. Not to mention the non-feathering, water-resistant formula. Smooth sailing, all the way. Available in the Richest, Deepest Black.

I say YES to all of these things and this really is the best cruelty free drugstore eyeliner around! Even as a pro liquid liner can sometimes be slightly less than cooperative when you have a client with twitchy eye, or if you’re still sleepy starting a wedding before dawn. One of the best things about this bomb ass super inexpensive cruelty free drugstore eyeliner is that the application is very smooth and very black on the first pass. Layering over a liquid application too many times to darken the color will make it flaky and when using black it’s because you want a bold, sharp, and dark as night line, so why mess with a product that can only deliver when coaxed?

Bunk or Buy: BUY!!!! There is nothing I don’t like about this applicator and formula. Milani really hit it out of the park with this water resistant, smooth, precise black eyeliner and I highly suggest you pick one up.

“…book Eden if you want to look good for an event.”




My husband and I were married on June 21st.  …Eden is beyond great. Her energy and savvy talent made my sisters, mom, niece, and myself relaxed and look like dreamboats.  Eden worked on some of the wildest ethnic hair (curly/ thick/ coarse hair) and made us all look fabulous*.

HANDS DOWN- book Eden if you want to look good for an event. It helps that she is just fun and has a cool personality.

“You can never go wrong with Eden.”




Eden was my wedding make-up artist and honestly I could not have picked a better person!
Eden is super sweet, funny, free spirited, and extremely talented. Eden will give you exactly what you want.

On the day of my wedding I decided to go off course with what we had originally planned during the trial, and Eden was extremely flexible and did an amazing job! I also have a vitiligo skin problem which I wanted to cover up for the wedding and I could not have been happier with the results. You can never go wrong with Eden 🙂

The Problem With Beauty Bloggers




A few weeks ago, fellow Professional Makeup Artist and Beauty Blogger Sonia Roselli submitted her (awesome) blog Glossible for affiliate  linking consideration. She was rejected despite good content and 20 years of experience behind it because her social media presence was not flashy enough. What resulted was a huge controversy in the beauty blogging world, an epic “revenge post” that fueled the fire even more, and one unexpectedly viral quote from yours truly making the rounds on social media. So here is…The Problem With Beauty Bloggers.
